Reviews

"Our bodies have been the cause of much shame and guilt, as well as false pride--yet they have much to teach us about divinity. Owens unpacks this thesis by examining themes such as fear and impulse, celebration and connectivity. The Canadian author . . . has a strong command of biblical and liturgical theology, and she directs that skill in penetrating and healing ways. Incarnation and resurrection--God in Jesus, both human and divine--are at the core of our understanding of being Christian. We can rejoice in both carnality and divinity, and this book helps us explore that more deeply."--Wayne Holst, Faith Today, March/April 2017
